Ceremony is new unique Rapé that imparts deep glowing emanations through ones being. It is a sandy-brown coloured superfine powder. It is not as sharp on the sinuses as other Rapé's but imparts a deep persisting bodily effect. Ceremony ignites a deep warmth in one sinuses and it radiates into ones very being and onsciousness. This dry heat does not burn or hurt and the impact is not sharp or slicing. Instead it emanates a deep glow something akin to the experience of being near to and staring into the glowing logs in the centre of a fire. Watering from the eyes occurs shortly after application. One is not jolted into the now but is captured by the radiating pulses of warmth that permeates every cell in the body. Then you are here, now. Like the afterglow of a powerful ceremony it is grounding, deeply calming yet lifting and expansive. A space to meditate, to expand. One can ride the pulses of warmth as the effects persist for some time after use! This Rapé keeps one quietly in one's chair for 15 minutes, glowing in beauty. Some have reported that this Rapé activates their light body creating an experience that can be tangibly felt in ones aura. It is very steady, without peaks and promotes out of body experiences very easily.
Ceremony is a blend of the traditions of two tribes, it consists of Rustica Tabaco from the northeast of Brazil that imparts an almost spicey flavour. The base of the blend is a Tsunu recipe following Yawanawa tradition, the ash come from Acre, and it is enriched with ashes of a sacred tree originating from Pernambuco. The producer is a neo-shamanic student of the plants, who lives in Acre, Brazil and follows the traditional ways and uses only traditional ingredients.
This is a very fine powder, though a little more coarse than usual. It takes great effort to produce such a fine powder, entirely void of stems, veins, grains and bits, at a 200 micron fineness. The fineness is our standard because this provides the best Rapé experience. All of our Rapé varieties are processed to a high standard and a consistent fineness, using laboratory grade sieves and milling equipment.
"...Ceremony Rapé is a very nice Rapé. With each time I use it, it gives me a different experience. It makes me very meditative with a good grounding, but also sometimes very active in the head and crown chakra. It centers me very fast and allowing a very strong flow of pure energie to stream. Watering eyes and at times very intense in its working, and at other times very gentle, depending on my own state of mind at the time..."
"...The Ceremony Rapé is beautiful and flows with a hint of coconut. Warm and grounding, in fact a perfect start to a tea gathering..."

Leonel, 25 years old, father of 2 kids, is a gifted handicraft artist and just finished his pharmacology studies.
When he was 15 years old he started to show interest in spirituality and native roots of his country Brasil. Many paths started to unfold, and in 2011 he had the chance to work with Yagé for the first time. During 2012 he frequently visited Yagé ceremonies and began to develop a deep interest in study of native
cultures and forest medicines. He also joined a native medicine songs study group where heʼs been part for a couple of years.
End of 2012, on a trip to beautiful Chapada dos Veadeiros brought him deeper into Rapé and the early months of 2013 brought a feeling of a growing urge to dedicate himself to this powerful jungle medicine and to dive deeper into the living science of it.
The same year at a singing session of the native songs study group they received some native visitors from the Fulni-o tribe of Pernambuco in northeast Brasil whom joined in for some songs and Leonel began to feel deep appreciation for those people and their culture which led into the beginning of an a extended friendship with some of them.
End 2013 he met a famous Rapé producer and transpersonal psychotherapist, well respected for his work with Rapé and holding space in forest medicine circles. Since the first encounter they both felt the flow and after some months Leonel could start working with him learning the fine arts of manufacturing and the traditional recipes gathered from different tribes. He also could assist in the circles with his songs and the Rapé, this period in his life being his time as an apprentice.
In the year 2014 after ceremony where the brothers from the Funi-O tribe assisted, Leonel began to manifest the vision of a close partnership with them, bringing them from far northeast Pernambuco to Sao Paolos concrete jungle to enhance cultural exchange and to open them doors to apply their traditional medicines (Jurema), but also offering them a platform to sell their artwork and handicraft. Since then he has travelled with members of the tribe to several Brazilian cities following the same purpose and interconnecting also with other tribes living on the Brazilian territoryʼs. Through this work he got in contact with members of several tribes that all contributed a lot to his studies of the matter and brought him to a deeper level of knowledge. These tribes are the Huni Kuin (Acre), Yawanawa (Acre), Kariri-Xoco (Alagoas), Katukina (Acre), Guarani (Sao Paolo), Pataxo (Bahia) and the Huichol people from Mexico.
Nowadays his manufacturing skills are firm and strong and after all these years he continues making his Rapé in an artisanal way following the traditions he learned, instead of using any machine help during the main process he stamps hours with the traditional pilão and sings to the medicine, but he is also being open to new trends, fusions and creative ideas. He uses best quality pure tobacco originating from the Northeast of the country and the best quality ashes coming from the Brazilian amazon, all ingredients originating from native sources.
The work heʼs doing serves as a bridge between native cultures and between traditional systems of medicine, environmental management and traditional art.
His mission is to open access for people to this cultures and to facilitate access to traditional medicine of good quality in Brazil and abroad, always working in cooperation with other partners. His academical work during his formation as a pharmacologist the last years focussed mainly on the sciences of ethnobotany, ethnofarmacology and pharmacognosy, planning and realising studies about the potential of medicinal plants as a treatment for arterial hypertension and studying and developing ideas for natural cosmetic and other natural products.
The Ceremony blend of Rapé is Leonels own creation, using a flavoury Funi-O tobacco from the northeast. The base of the blend is a Tsunu recipe following Yawanawa tradition, the ash comes from Acre, and then he enriches it with ashes of a sacred tree originating from the Funi-O tribe from Pernambuco.
This blend is an expression of the bridge Leonel tries to build between different tribes of Brasil. Its a blend of Yawanawa Rapé tradition with a touch of Funi-O wine cult. During the process of obtaining the ashes all the active components of the tree get burned and in a process catalysed by the fire the essence of it goes over in the ashes.
